Mental approach enables Andrews to produce peak performance
IF NOTHING comes of this year's world titles, Nick Andrews will take a year to regroup and focus on university, before unleashing a fresh assault on the karting world in 2017.
It shows he has the maturity as well as talent to be a success, be it in the driver's seat or as a sports psychologist.
"It interests me a bit," Andrews said of pursuing psychology.
"It could go in hand with a racing career.
Sports psychologists are employed to help sports people find a way to produce their best under all circumstances.
They call it "peak performance".
It is the art of not being over excited, while being stimulated enough to produce one's best.
Judging by Andrews' cool approach to the final round at Ipswich he ahs already mastered it.
"You've got to be in a zone where you feel no pressure," he said.
"I drink water and try to relax while staying focussed."
Mum's massage relaxation music also helps clear Andrews' mind and emotions so he can produce his best under pressure.
